About this book
Spectacular photos begin with your Sony Alpha and this book. With its Alpha A300 and A350 cameras, Sony has blurred the distinction between introductory and advanced dSLRs. With the expert advice in this book, you’ll learn to use every menu and control perfectly and gain insight into setting up and capturing shots that will amaze you.  Reach beyond the automatic settings and take control of exposure, shutter speed, white balance, and every creative element that makes photography an art. Part I explores using your Sony Alpha A300 or A350 straight out of the box. Starting with an in depth look at the Sony Quick AF Live View System, this part of the book also explores all the external controls, explaining the purpose and function of each button, dial, and switch. Understanding your camera’s menu system is crucial to getting great results with the A300 or the A350, and of course the book will also teach you how to maneuver through all of your camera’s menus. You’ll not only learn how to adjust each setting, but when and why you should make each adjustment. Chapter 3 gives a thorough explanation of basic photography fundamentals, without overwhelming jargon and technical terms. If you are a new photographer you will gain an appreciation of aperture, shutter speed, exposure, ISO and white balance. If you are an experienced photographer you’ll find helpful tips and tricks for adjusting each of these key settings. Interchangeable lenses are one of a dSLR's major strengths, and that is true of both the A300 and A350. With so many lens options, choosing auxiliary lenses for the A300 series can become overwhelming. Chapter 4 helps you eliminate the mystery about which lenses to buy and gives you a full explanation of what to look for when evaluating a new lens. With information on wide-angle, normal, telephoto, and macro lenses, this chapter discusses the full Sony lens lineup and goes on to demystify the option of using Minolta lenses on the Sony Alpha. Understanding light and light modifiers, such as diffusers and reflectors, is absolutely essential to getting great results from a dSLR. In chapter 5, you'll find a complete discussion of lighting basics, including the differences between continuous lighting and electronic flash. The full array of light modifiers is outlined, and the chapter goes on to explain the strengths and weaknesses of the proprietary Sony/Minolta hot shoe design. Naturally, there is also a discussion of which flash units work with the A300 series. Chapter 6 consists of a series of exercises designed to enhance your skills when shooting in a wide variety of photographic situations, including everything from macro photography and black and white to high dynamic range, portrait, and travel photography. Each topic is accompanied by numerous full color examples. DSLR photography entails far more than just the camera and lens. Once you fill your memory card with great images, you will need to download, catalog, store and edit those images. Chapter 7 takes you through a quick, but informative tour of the software and hardware options available to simplify your digital workflow. You will be exposed to the differences between RAW and JPEG images and you'll receive a thorough overview of your RAW processing options. You also learn about sharpening and noise reduction software, as well as the best editing applications.

About this book
Meet the A300 and A350—the two newest cameras in Sony’s beginner-friendly “A” series. They’re alike except for sensor resolution (the 350 has the highest available in any consumer model), and are perfect for anyone ready to move up from point-and-shoot cameras. That’s because they actually allow photographers to view the scene in front of them on the LCD monitor prior to shooting. Owners will look to this guide to find out how to use the Live Preview with AF and exposure control; adjustable variable angle LCD monitor that flips out and twists; and Super SteadyShot(R) image stabilization that vastly reduces blur.

    Much Better Than Expected!

    0 5/5 Shon (Boston, MA United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Cowboystudio NPT-04, 4 Channel Wireless Hot Shoe Flash Trigger Receiver for Sony Alpha Digital lSLR Camera and Sony Flash (Camera) A friend of mine bought the Nikon version of this product and he was very satisfied, so, even after I read the last few reviews on this product, I decided to buy anyway. What I received was the best price/solution for Sony Cameras and Flash Units anywhere! Right out of the box, all receivers and transmitters worked flawlessly. I have the Sony Alpha A900 and 3 Sony HVL-F58AM Flash Units. I Synced all of the flash units with my camera and mounted all the Cowboy Studio units - and everything worked perfectly. I can reliably shoot up to 30feet from camera (with transmitter) to flash units (with receivers) and I have not yet missed a single shot! Also, the customer service from Cowboy Studio is Excellent. I called the staff at Cowboy Studio and they took the time to answer all of my questions. If you are looking for a mobile lighting set-up, using Sony HVL-F58AM flash units, this product will deliver! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 7, 2011

    First wireless triggers I've used - works great

    Not wanting to purchase pockwizards due to the steep price, I opted for this product instead. I'm glad I did since they work fantastic at 1/10 the price.Works with no issues on my Sony a850.I am also using this on an a55, and the camera does suffer from a "black screen" issue when any wireless trigger is mounted on the body, making it impossible to frame the subject. (Sony says this is normal and the camera was not intended for the studio setting.) The work around I found is to keep the flash up and dial flash compensation to absolute minimum. (This minimizes light from the body and keeps the screen from blacking out) If complete elimination of onboard flash is desired you can always obstruct the light with electrical tape or your hand when firing. I also use a hotshoe extension cord because the trigger does push a little on the flash when it is up.Finally, the receiving units have an added bonus of having a built in umbrella holder... 5/5 Christopher J.

    Very nice upgrade from version 1. Works on sony a7 too

    0 5/5 chphotovideo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yongnuo Upgrade RF-603 II C3 2.4GHz Wireless Flash Trigger/Wireless Shutter Release Transceiver Kit for Canon 1D/1DS, EOS 5D Mark II/5D/7D/50D/40D/30D/20D/10D Series (Electronics) I've been using the Yongnuo triggers for a while now. Really liked them but i was't a fan of how the on/off switch was hid under the flash when attached, or the hotshoe mount did not have a lock. Both these gripes have been fixed on these new version II.Main reason I picked up the version 2 was because I started shooting with a Sony a7 and the versions 1 would not work on the camera, I read the 2 did work on the a7 so tried it out. They work like a charm! Best part is I can use the version 2 trigger on the camera and it will trigger any of the version 1's!! The on/off switch is now on the side of the trigger and easy to access. The lock wheel on the hotshoe is really nice addition. Not only is the lock wheel there, but it has nice grips on the wheel so you can actually turn it. Very pleased with this purchase. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 26, 2014

    Two big improvements for the 603

    0 5/5 Brownian Movement (California) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yongnuo Upgrade RF-603 II C3 2.4GHz Wireless Flash Trigger/Wireless Shutter Release Transceiver Kit for Canon 1D/1DS, EOS 5D Mark II/5D/7D/50D/40D/30D/20D/10D Series (Electronics) Great new lockdown ring added to positively attach it to the camera's hotshoe. This functions much like the locking ring on a flash head.The other BIG improvement is that Yongnuo relocated the power switch to the side of the unit so it is no longer covered by the flash head while in use. The switch now has Rx and Tx positions in addition to the off position. This takes a little getting used to and would be good to get familiar with before using it on an important shoot.

    5, Adding the power switch for single transmitter --- Set the power switch on TX (single transmit) or TRX (transmit-receive automatic switch) state according to different shooting requirement. When it used as wireless triggering transmitter and flash testing, set to "TX"; When it used as wireless triggering receiver, using shutter release or other extended functions, set to "TRX". set to OFF means turn off the power.

    Awesome

    0 5/5 Josh - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Neewer Wireless Remote FM Radio Flash Speedlite Trigger w/ 2.5mm PC 2 Receiver (Electronics) This was exactly what i was looking for. i have 2 canon speedlite 430s and wanted to use them as portable light sources with my canon 50D. Now i can set up my external flashes on tripods and use them in any lighting condition as a fill. This is particularly helpful on very bright days with harsh light and drastic shadowing on your subject. I was skeptical that these would work at all because they're so cheap but they work like a charm. they're light but feel fairly solid. they're easy to use, simply match up the 4-digit code on both trigger and receiver and bam, you've got a wireless flash. They have good reach, I tested them at 20+ yards and they fired perfectly. The only negative I've noticed was that they do fit on my speedlites very tight but they're manageable. Dont be dissuaded by the low price tag. These work perfect. There is absolutely no need to pay more. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 26, 2013
